    Wow, what a crazy image! When and where was this?

    Yikes, the gimmicks they had to put up with……sitting on baby carriages?? Is that any way to treat a rock n roll band?

    Ah, I have it now, they were filming a trailer for AHDN at Twickenham Studios with Dick Lester.

    “Tell them about the film and that..”

    Was there ever any film of this? I think I have only seen photos. Oh boy, they must have “loved” doing this… (BTW I can’t stop listening to “Midnight McCartney” by John Pizzarelli: delicious record!)

    Yes there is film of this. I’ve seen it. I’m not sure if it was an added bonus to the videotape(and eventual DVD) of “A Hard Day’s Night” or not but I have seen it. Maybe this whole set up was Richard Lester’s idea? I don’t think Richard gets enough credit for his helping to form the early Beatles image they way they were portrayed in “A Hard Day’s Night” and “Help!” but I think it is HUGE! He and The Beatles together were a marriage made in heaven.

    I’ve seen it too. It’s rather esoteric for the Beatles at that point in their careers- more fitting for the Monkees and their film Head. While Paul and John speak a bit about the film, the phone on Ringo’s lap would ring and he’d answer it and turn to John saying “It’s for you”. John would simply reply “Don’t be soft.” This happened 2-3 times and then the whole thing ends. In my opinion, it’s lucky for them that this didn’t work against the film because it’s just so strange.
